My name is Navjot Singh. These days I am a Full-Time Blogger, WordPress Expert, SEO Consultant, and Internet Marketer from Punjab, India. I have over seven years of experience working as an Internet Marketer.
The way I got started in Internet Marketing is very interesting. I become a Certified Pharmacist in Year 2000 and had what many would consider a great career as a Pharmacist. I worked as a Pharmacist for more than seven years at various locations in Punjab. But in 2007, I realized that I did not love my job, and there was not very much opportunity to grow in this field. I did not love the long working hours that included a lot of responsibilities and what I considered to be a low salary.
Just after leaving this job, while trying to figure out, what I would do next, one day, one of my best friend named Jagjit Singh, told me that there was an opening for a Content Writer in his office.
He asked, “why don’t you apply there ?” I said, “What ! a Content Writer? But I am not a writer & and I don’t know anything about writing content.” But, after lots of discussions, I decided to apply. After a few rounds of testing, I was finally selected. Everything was new to me, but I was determined to learn fast.
After six months on the job, I still had only a basic idea of what a Content Writer did, and what the benefits were to the business. The same was true for SEO and link-building. However, the more I learned, the more interested I became. So, whenever I would get home from work, I would just keep learning new things and how it all works. I was able to take what I learned from reading various industry blogs and books and put this information to use.
I never had a coach. Yes! You read it right…. No one. I am a self-taught Internet Marketer. I have learned everything myself, from domain registration to web hosting; from website installation to database creation; from web site maintenance to content creation; from blog monetization to search engine optimization (SEO). During that time, SEO, link building, and blogging were not very well understood in India. So, I thought, ‘Internet Marketing is very new in India, so why not start my career doing this?’ So, after working for about two years at the same office, I decided to quit that job and start my own business. I must say that this was the turning point in my life, and I have never looked back. I continued learning via video tutorials and eBooks. I spent more 18 hour days sitting on the computer than you can imagine.
And one day, I found an opportunity (through eLance.com) to do an SEO project for a US-based client. I started implementing the step by step, referring to the notes, which I had and the bookmarked pages stored in my computer. And in a very short time the website was on the first page of Google for the expected keywords. The customer was happy and encouraged me, and that achievement and recognition gave me confidence in my SEO skills. Once I started to learn how SEO worked, I became addicted to learning how to drive traffic to websites.
My Career as a WordPress Security Expert:-
Before started working as a WordPress Security Expert, I have spent a lot of time in learning all of the ways, that how hackers hacks the blogs, what their motives are, and how their best secret is the fact that they don’t talk about it much. Starting with one small job, I was successful, and since then I have helped dozens of clients from around the world to improve their WordPress security.
Entry to Internet Marketing:-
I started almost seven years ago and, to be honest; I wasted over $10K trying to make money online – following the blueprints, mastery courses and one click software tools out there. But nothing worked! So I decided to go back and teach myself the basics of building websites. In the past 15 months, I have built more than 20 niche websites! I am not a marketing guru. Not at all. What I am is a normal human being who has discovered some good strategies for earning money online.
So, If you are just starting out online, please understand that making money on the Internet is not an overnight thing. Not even close. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to pull it off. A lot of people will attempt it, and many people will quit before they achieve success, but I know that it’s possible to find success. I am living proof! I struggled through trial and error for years, but I always had a goal and consistently worked at it. I knew the alternative (Pharmacy was my best option), and that was not an option for me. Learn from my story – you may struggle to put in the time and effort but, if you implement and don’t quit, you will see great things happen in your business and your life. So. that is my story. I hope you enjoyed it and would value your thoughts and feedback.
